Learning from a Courageous Researcher

As Time Advisers, we can’t know everything about time-based productivity. At the same time, our clients look to us to provide more than trivial tips, tricks and top ten lists of shortcuts they can find for themselves using a Google search.

We need coaching and processes that are so full of “inside” information, our clients thank us. One way to gain that information is through research, and here’s an outstanding example.

In the absence of current, easy-to-find research in time-based productivity, Dr. Melinda Wilson created her own first-hand information by tackling one productivity technique per week for a year, and then writing up her findings in plain English. I interviewed her at the end of her courageous effort. As time advisers, we should all be grateful.

Here’s a Researcher Who Spent a Year Tackling One Productivity Technique Per Week.

Appearing at the International Coach Federation Conference

ICF Button-Speaker

I have some good news. I’ll be appearing at the International Coach Federation (ICF) Midwest Conference in Cleveland, Ohio, speaking on January 20th. The topic of my speech will be How to Provide Expert (vs. Novice) Time Management Coaching.

For a full 90 minutes I’ll be sharing my 8 Phases of Time Management Coaching in an interactive session – there will be self-evaluations and role-plays mixed in to help make things interesting.

I hope to see you there – you can register to attend the conference here. I understand that it’s the largest conference of its kind in North America so it should be an interesting experience. If you are planning to attend also, please let me know so that we can meet up for, perhaps, the first time.
